I Crawl Through It
I Crawl Through It - A.S. King,A. S. King

 

 

Like the character in this book who calls herself Stanzi (her real name is never revealed), I am feeling a bit like a tetragametic chimera ("Somewhere in there you used to be fraternal twins.  And you blended.  Two into one.")  Stanzi often refers to having two conflicting halves that want to do opposing things.

 

Half of me wants to give this book two stars, and half of me wants to give it four.  So I am averaging the score to three.  Half of me, despite loving weird, feels this book is too weird.   The other loves how weird it is.  Half of me feels guilty that after requesting the ARC of this book from Netgalley--in 2015--and being accepted, I didn't get to it until now, long after it's been released in multiple forms, including audio (supplemented by the Kindle ARC I have).  Part of me is glad I listened/read AFTER I listened to/read Still Life With Tornado, which is also weird, but in a different way.  I may have needed to read that one first.

 

If you already love A.S. King and are in the mood for some very weird weird, you could enjoy this book.  But be in the right mood.

Crawl
Crawl - Edward Lorn

While creepy in its own account, I do not consider this short story to be one of my favourites by Edward Lorn.

 

In the ruins of their marriage Colton drives Juliet to her mother. But as they thought their luck was already running low, it might be time to think again. For soon Juliet finds herself nailed to a post and the only thing she can do to save herself is crawl.

 

The first part was really good. Anticipation was there all along and I was really waiting for something to happen. It could have lasted longer, as the tension was rising. I think the story would have worked better as a longer story. Because also the second part, the real horror felt a bit rushed and the ending too open for my liking. As this is usually the case with short stories, I blame it on the format.

 

I think I got this novella for free some time ago, but I really can't remember the details.

I Crawl Through It
I Crawl Through It - A.S. King

Everyone has their own coping mechanism; it’s how you make through life. The characters in this novel, their means were extraordinary and eccentric but they worked for them. They survived another day and somehow, they did it together and amazing no one really saw them, I mean really saw them. No one reached out to them as they went about their day. This novel was amazing, it made me laugh, there were moments of warmth and compassion and there was reality when you peeled back the layers of what was really happening inside the characters and their lives. They were living life the best that they could with what they had and it was not my world to judge what they were seeing or how they were behaving for I haven’t walked in their shoes, I would only walk with them and enjoy the path that they were on. Each of the characters faces pressures and it is how they deal with these pressures that concerned me the most. It wasn't who put these pressures on the teens but how they were dealing with the stress on their lives. Again, A.S. King pushes her readers to another level of reading, these characters actions and thought processes are not traditional or on the straight and narrow, they go beyond…….coming up with stories that pulled at my imagination and made me appreciate the uniqueness of the individual that we all are.   It’s a chaotic world that we all live in, and as individuals we all learn to live in it as we see fit.
